The CEB Student Bible is by and for young people. It invites them into deeper forms of personal and social holiness, helps them make connections between the world of the Bible and their own world, offers resources for engaging the text in personal and group study, and embodies a commitment to taking young people seriously as Christian leaders now, not just in the future. It is a resource that helps young disciples of Jesus Christ as they transform the world.
Unique to this student Bible is that the introductions, articles, and activities included with each book of the Bible were written by biblical scholars who also have experience in youth ministry. The included prayers were written by teens, providing a level of additional relatability to students. Included in this special edition are 16 additional pages in the front of the Bible with confirmation-related, official United Methodist materials, including a brief glossary of Methodist terms, selections from the General Rules, the Social Principles, the Social Creed, the membership covenant, and the Apostles' Creed.
The timeless design - charcoal leather-like material with the words “The CEB Student Bible” burnished on the cover - makes this an attractive gift that students may use for several years. A presentation page is included so that parents or pastors may commemorate the student’s confirmation.
